Do you want a job making video games, or do you know someone who does? Then let the Beginner's Guide show you the ropes!

Video Game Careers is an easy-to-read series of guides to the complex world of game development, written for gamers and the people who love them.

Book 1 - the Beginner’s Guide can help you decide if game development is the right career for you, and explains the basic skills you’ll need in a fun and simple way.

"The Video Game Careers series is just what an aspiring game creator needs to hear. When 'Hardy Says', you had best listen!" - Scott Rogers, author of Level Up! The Guide to Great Video Game Design

The series is written by Hardy LeBel, creative guru and multiplayer mastermind behind blockbuster series like Halo, SOCOM, FarCry and PacMan World, and explains game development from an insider’s perspective.

Inside, you'll learn stuff like:

• How video games are made (and where you can get the tools for free)

• Education tips for aspiring game creators (hint: you don’t have to be a genius)

• The four types of game career (which one is right for you?)

• How to land your first game job (we'll show you how!)

But don't just take our word for it - here's even more praise for the series… 

“Due to my tenure in the games business, people often ask me how they or their kids can get a start in the video game trade. I invariably direct them to the VIDEO GAME CAREERS series of books as an excellent place to start. Hardy LeBel paints a straightforward and useful picture of the industry that serves as a good launching point for aspiring game makers.”Zack Norman, Chief Creative Officer GOGII/textPlus

Look - we can’t legally promise that you’ll become a game designer overnight after reading this series. But hey… it can’t hurt! So grab your copy of the Beginner’s Guide and get started on your journey towards a Video Game Career today!
